post #3241 of 3398

Just bought a Beaufort. It's super shiny and new. How long does it take to get the worn, aged look? How can I speed up the process without wrecking the coat?

I'm more of an FCB fan :). Those stadiums are like a decent sized US city.

Just wear it. They tone down after getting wet a few times. You can't throw it in a washer but I suppose if you really wanted to speed it up, you could wet/soak it with water from a spray bottle or something like that then let it hang dry and repeat as necessary.

Yeah, it definitely doesn't take too much time to get it looking somewhat worn in. Probably not a huge deal either way, but I personally wouldn't try to manufacture the wear. You run the risk, however small, that you're not approximating what nature and a bit of time would do.

Yes, good point. How does it compare with the classic beaufort once it's worn in?

It definitely looks less shiny and more matted over time. I've only worn mine a few times as I live in Southern California but it doesn't really look "new" anymore.

Just purchased a Barbour Classic Bedale in size 32. I'm typically a size XS in outerwear, 36S in jackets, and this coat ended up fitting pretty well. The body isn't as slim as I'd like it to be, but it's not too billowy.

 

The only thing that I am not satisfied with is the large width throughout the arm.

 

Would an Ashby in XS or Bedale SL in 32 remedy this?

 

Thanks

@scoobydrew Yes to Bedale SL in 32. No to Ashby in XS. That fits more like a Bedale Classic in 34.

Definitely agree with this assessment, though I would suggest that a 34 Bedale SL might work better for you. I wear a 36 Bedale SL and a 34 Bedale for reference.

Recently bought a Barbour Classic Bedale in size 32. With a button up shirt and sweater, the chest and length fit me perfectly, and the shoulders, although a tad on the snugger side, also fit me, but the sleeve length, namely, the knitted cuffs inside the sleeves, are a bit short on my arms. When my arms are dropped straight down, it's fine, but when I outstretch my arms in front of me, they hike up from my wrist about maybe an inch and a half or so. Took some fit and rolled sleeve pictures to show what I mean.

 

Should I size up to a size 34, or is this normal and the sleeves will eventually stretch/lengthen after some wear? I don't know if sizing up to a size 34 would result in it then being too big on me as well, since size 32 fits me pretty well otherwise. Thanks!

It even looks short to me with arms down. Arms are not going to stretch.

Ditto.

For sizing questions, I've found this Barbour buyer's guide to be very helpful. They have measurements for most of the sizes of the popular jackets and the differences between them:

Unfortunately looks like I'll be sending it back; thanks for the assist everyone, as well as the buyers guide link.

Just added the Stanhope from STP which now comes depressingly close to completing the entire Barbour x Norton & Sons collab as I first purchased the St. Kilda from Barneys (God I wish I had gotten the Barra!).  This was followed up by the Slicker Too, Seaboard, a rugby shirt that I cannot remember the name of and another jacket I forget from Barneys Warehouse.  

 

That said, I just could not resist getting the Stanhope for a whopping $86.  Combined with the mainline offerings like the  Classic Bedale, Classic Beaufort, and multiple other jackets, I have got to be at well more than a dozen.
